Choosing place

Choose suitable place so that:

  • 50mm high horizontal strips are clear on the chimney
  • The flange will sit flat and will not sit on cracking protrusions
  • There will be enough space to mount the optical heads in the required direction, for cables
  • The chimney will not fume on the lenses.

Put the two identical pieces onto the chimney the way the biggest clearance will be available around the pipes. The opening of the U section comes towards the wall (the sections will sit only on the two edges). Tighten the sections together over the chimney using the two or more M10 thread bars, four spring washers on all sides of the bars and M10 nuts. Extend the M10 threaded bars using M10 union nuts.
